Cracking the Code: Computer Programming For Kids & Learning Code

I own a web-based business and I’m an avid blogger/social media type. One would assume that I would be quite the tech savvy mama. The truth is… I’m not. Luckily when I’m hanging around the office, there are a plethora of smarty-pant nerd types who can help me out. When I’m at home, I have to pull in the big guns for…

Stress Management Tips for Working Moms

Stress is a common problem among working moms. Working and raising children is a bit like having two full-time jobs, especially if you have young children.

So, how do you manage it all and keep your cool? If you’re having trouble keeping your stress levels under control as a working mom, here are three tips to help you…

We noticed that 15 moms on MyWorkButterfly celebrated their birthday today - April 22. 

That got us thinking. Yes, we're all connected here on Butterfly. But, do these same 15 moms within one community even know each other. Have they ever had a conversation -…

Spam in NOT on the Menu - Weekly Wings

Spam. Never liked the stuff- be it in the can or out. Lately, I’ve been seeing more spam out of the can and in the pages of MyWorkButterfly.com.  If you are confused as to what “spam” is as it relates to our community- let me clarify:

 

  1. If you are selling or directly promoting your business- that is spam.
  2. If you…

Moms Guide to Re-Entering the Workforce

In 2005, Forte Foundation, a consortium of business schools and major companies and Wharton Center for Leadership and Change Management concluded that women who re-enter the workforce after taking a hiatus to raise a family, care for a parent, or tend to other personal matters could derail their career.

Among their findings,

  • An overwhelming majority (70 percent) of women initially felt positive about leaving their full-time jobs. But this optimism dropped sharply as…

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Flashback..circa 1980 something.. sitting in social studies classroom on "career day". I'm asked...what do I want to be when I grow up? I didn't even have to give it a thought, I already knew what my answer was before I was called on. Without hesitation, I replied...A MOM! A mom?? hmm...quiet in the room...perhaps not the expected response from a 7th grade girl. Granted, this was at a time when it was cutting edge and respectable for women to be "career women" with cooler letters for titles… Continue

comment on health care bill

I am astounded that the American public is being so completely ignored by Congress. The government that I have watched for my lifetime doesn't run anything efficiently. Why are we allowing congress to run our medical programs? I remember when many of these same promises were being applied to Medicare and Medicaid. Not many would argue that these programs have been grossly mismanaged and abused. Did anyone see ABC Nightline's expose of Medicare fraud last week? Do we really expect anything… Continue

It was just another mommy site...it is where I go to re-root now

It is always good to phone home. Even if home is simply a website where you feel welcomed. I always feel like this is my foundation here. I don't know why, but I do. I go to other sites and it feels like I am only there to visit.



Thanks Brandi. Thank you Terri. For having a dream and an idea and a plan that you each put forth to provide a way, a means not only for yourself, but for your members.

Get Out of the Do

It's Monday morning and I'm looking at what I accomplished last week. I was SO busy - catching up after big snow storms caused havoc to my work schedule (due to a six days of no school for my son), keeping on top of current client needs, responding to new clients and marketing opportunities, staying on top of email and phone calls, chairing a big volunteer event and taking care of me, the house, my family and meals. Although I did…

Motherhood and the CV Gap: How to bridge the gap in your resume

One of the most frequently asked questions that I am ever asked, both as a recruiter and as a career coach, is about handling gaps in a CV caused by taking time out to raise a family.

Response: there is no one magic wand answer. Or at least not one that I can think of.

Starting and raising a family is one of the greatest challenges of not just being a woman, but being a woman in the work place. We all handle it differently. There is no right or wrong…

Michelle Obama takes a strong position on fixing work/life issues in today's society. But is it "working"?

Hallelujah, Michelle Obama, who stated, "As a society, we view work-life balance policies as special benefits for women, rather than “essential policies that can benefit everyone in the workplace."

It's hard to believe that for example roughly 40% of private sector employees work at organizations that currently don't offer paid sick leave. Yes, 40%.

So while Michelle Obama, is focused on trying to bring attention to the issues moms face in terms…
